Fire destroys top of wind turbine near Goderich

April 2, 2013



There will be one less wind turbine in Ontario.

An overnight fire has destroyed the top portion of a wind turbine at the Kingsbridge Wind Farm near Goderich, Ont.

The fire in the seven-year-old turbine began around 1 a.m. on Tuesday and had burned itself out about two hours later.

Dan Hayden of Kingsbridge Wind Farm Operations says “It has burnt itself out through the night and we have a team of specialists coming to do a root-cause analysis.”

Neighbours speculate it was a mechanical or electrical problem because the blaze started where all the gears and electronics in the turbine are located.

  1. The turbines in Ontario are variously owned. Some German, Some Spanish, some US, but they set up Canadian offices. Hard to say where all the profits go….but we can guess. Ontario now has more than 4,000….hideous monsters, and it is a pure hell for wildlife, water supplies, people, and the economy.
